WE'RE INTO: THIS MORTAL COIL REISSUE

2011 sees the release of the long overdue upgrade to This Mortal Coil’s catalogue. For the first time the three core albums –It’ll End In Tears, Filigree & Shadow and Blood – have been re-mastered from the original analogue studio tapes in HD-CD.

They have been manufactured in Japan and packaged in gatefold ‘paper’ sleeves, accompanied by inner bags and new booklets. The artwork for each album has been re-designed by Ivo Watts-Russell and Vaughan Oliver at V23 (4AD’s longtime visual collaborator), and is based around Nigel Grierson’s original photography, incorporating graphics that unify the look of the re-issues.

While the three albums will be available individually at a later date (replacing the current jewel case versions of the CD’s), the initial release is exclusively in a box set which is a worldwide limited edition. Additionally the box set will contain a fourth disc, entitled Dust & Guitars, which features all of This Mortal Coil’s singles, including an unreleased track, “We Never Danced”, originally intended for a Rough Trade Singles Club release but withdrawn.

All three albums are also scheduled to be released in real HD digital (96khz / 24bit) on an Audio Blu-Ray disc entitled “Tears In The Drop Box”, which will also include Dust & Guitars, This Mortal Coil’s videos and other special features
